Add your voice




At this evening's virtual Town Hall Meeting, the subject is the $40 million decrease in county tax revenues, and its impact on the Sarasota County budget. One goal will be to gather knowledge and input from as wide a range of sources as possible with regard to deciding reductions in what many regard as essential services: What are our community's priorities? Can we discuss openly and reach public consensus? How can the public become more central to the process?

There are several ways for people who aren't physically present at this evening's meeting to participate:

  • Telephone: 861-2255 (active on June 8)
  • Fax: 861-7354
  • E-mail: communityconnections@scgov.net
  • Comment right here on this blog.
As the meeting develops (it begins at 6:30 p.m.), feel free to drop comments, questions, observations here. This is an independent blog created by a Sarasota resident interested in exploring the possibilities of social media for civic purposes, and will serve as a public record of the event.

Think of it as an experiment in an alternative mode of citizenship and join in!
